Shoveling Snow… An Unexpected Physical Challenge

It’s snowing out there… Are you in shoveling shape? No, really… Are you in shape for unexpected physical work?

karen-legs-plus-book-2018Many people are not. But when it comes time to shovel the snow, pick up the groceries, do the laundry, or pick up that little family member who wants to be held many people simply can’t do it. It’s often not from injury or illness, it’s from being too sedentary for too long.

So, if you want those unexpected physical challenges to be a bit easier, start exercising now. If you do something very physical after being so sedentary, you risk serious injury and a miserable few days to several weeks after that. Why risk it?

There are plenty of appropriate workouts you can do. Start at the beginning then work up to more challenging workouts. Two of the workout types that I have developed are unique and get results. You can check them out at www.swingworkouts.com and www.legsplus.com.

Good luck… and get in shape now for those unexpected days later…

Bread… You CAN Eat Bread…

Bread… Yes, I DO Eat Bread!

potato-bread-clipart-8You CAN eat bread and remain healthy. That’s as long as you are eating a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and other REAL foods. Every cell in your body relies on glucose to function so you DO NEED CARBS for energy.

My favorite bread is the Oat Nut, but there are many varieties that will not sabotage your good health. The Ezikiel bread in the freezer section is a great one.

Salad… You Do Not Need Lettuce.

Salads… You Do Not Need Lettuce

2-27661_fruit-and-vegetables-clipartI have a thought for those of you who say you “hate salad.” Did you know you can throw a few fruits and/or veggies of your choice and call it a salad?

Start with a few green beans and grapes if that’s all you enjoy from the produce dept. Or how about a sliced apple, maybe a clementine, and some green beans? How about an apple, cheese, and grapes?

I’m not saying to leave out kale and spinach if you enjoy them. I eat them very often. I am just letting people know they can add nutrients to their diet in a more creative way if they do not like lettuce, kale, or spinach.

Be creative and try to get at least three healthy items into that bowl.

No Need to Eat 100% Healthy 100% of the Time

No need to eat 100% healthy 100% of the time. Yes, you heard right. Karen Goeller, CSCS, the person who has been teaching people about health, fitness, and strength for over 30 years just said that!

cartIf you try to eat 80%-90% healthy, you’ll likely be satisfied and remain close to your ideal weight. But first, define healthy.

In my opinion, healthy foods are food from the produce, fish, and meat sections of the supermarket. That’s fruits, vegetables, and lean meats. Yes, potatoes and yams included. Just stay away from the boxed meals, fast-foods, and junk foods.

Try really hard to snack on high-quality foods rather than cookies, candies, and other processed foods with low or no nutritional value.

And yes, I DO eat bread and a high protein-omega-3 pasta made from legumes. I personally enjoy Oat Nut bread and Barilla pasta in the yellow box. The Ezekiel bread is high quality too. And of course, your beverages count. Keep the sugar and syrups OUT of your coffee!

So try this. next time you go to the store, be sure that 8 or 9 of every ten items in your cart are actually healthy items. I personally only eat 80%-90% healthy. Remember to define healthy before you make changes.

Good luck… Stay healthy!

P.S. Follow your doctor’s guidelines for you if you have a specific diet. Discuss all changes with a medical professional.
